COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Odins Tipple was meant to be a strong beer, but we changed our minds...its still strong but we wont follow the mega strong trend. It should be possible to make great beer without the extreme alcohol potency. Odins Tipple is now approx 11% abv, itís a dark almost black beer from lots and lots of chocolate malt. Its the malt that contributes the flavor...no added coffee or anything else, Its got a great body without being old engine oil and still very drinkable due to the wild yeast we use. This beer is made with a single strain of wild yeast and the recipe is dead simple.

Countbeer (6286) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2010
UPDATED: APR 15, 2012 Bottle: Very nice big airy dark brown head disappears quick into a brown lacing. The pour is motor oily black. Black as night. Smell is soda, liquorice, soja, chocolate, toffee, caramel, light hint of burnt coffee and malts. Taste is amazing: viscous mouthfeel and big body taste bomb: deep dark espresso, coffee, roasted/burnt malts, caramel, hops (bitter), chocolate. Deep warm, light bitter and coffee grassy aftertaste. Light above average carbo. Super beer.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Bottle:   Pitch black, large frothy brown head, sticky lacing.   Amazing how thick and black this is.   Sweet roasted malt, lactose, slight campfire and peat.   Seems like a cross between a Scottish Ale and perhaps an Imperial Stout.   On the tongue it is very roasty, but also has big heaps of campfire, charred wood, peat, and lactose.   Body and mouthfeel are smooth and robust.   Not overly heavy like other Imperial Stouts.   Has a bit of a coffee aspect on the finish.   Very malty, low hop aspect, which is expected for a Norsk beer.   Sweet, roasty, loads of lactose, peat, charred wood, campfire.   This is not your average Imperial Stout.   It is much like Robust Porter crossed with an Imperial Scottish or something.   Hops are low, malts are high.   Very flavorful.   At first I thought it said Odinís Tripple... and when I poured it I thought what retard didnít do his/her homework.   It was me who needed to do the homework.   As is, very robust and flavorful beer.   Once again, proud to be Norwegian.   This is a very unique and flavorful Imperial Stout.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 500mL. Pours black as hell. Massive, menacing, ultra dark brown head erupts forth with very good retention and okay lace. Nose is fresh, floral, loads of tar, tobacco, molasses, massive caramel, burnt cherries and plums. Taste is rich, creamy, pretty dry like eating a spoonful of cocoa powder along with nutmeg, some numbing spices like saffron, cloves, spoonful of cinnamon. Slight pepper. Palate is dry, chalky rather than oily, slick. Numbing mouthfeel. So this is the "not strong" version? Now I want the full-on version.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle with Pwn3d and jredmond. Pours a pitch black with a moderate brown head. Nose is very roasted coffee with some alcohol in it. Taste is very robust with coffee and chocolate notes and some alcohol coming through, not nearly the 11% on the bottle. Great stout.

crusianbeer (116) - Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2010
bottle from Steins in New Orleans. been looking for this one for a while. Pours like a thick ass stout. not sure why they call it a dark norse ale... though I guess it is. he head is unlike anything I have ever seen. it stays at 1 finger the entire hour I drink it. lacing is off the chart. Smells and tastes like carbonated coffee. Worth the wait I have been putting in. I wish I had bought more. ends with a very bitter finish. Overall, nice. I want more, but only bought 1.

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Viscous black pour with a creamy latte head that left generous lacing. Aroma of espresso, roasted malt, cocoa, caramel, and dark fruit. Flavor is robust and filled with wood, chocolate, vanilla, and ash. The alcohol is there but not overwhelming. Velvety mouthfeel...really good!!!
